A former children's home in Leicestershire that closed in the 1960s is under police investigation over allegations which surfaced during an investigation into Jimmy Savile abuse claims.
One informant told investigators that he saw a girl being dragged away by a man he thought was Jimmy Savile and another man. The next day he was told she had died.
The report concluded that there was no evidence Jimmy Savile was involved in abuse at Roecliffe Manor in Woodhouse Eaves near Loughborough but it was likely that abuse had taken place. NHS bosses in Leicestershire say all the evidence has been passed to the police.
The investigation has concluded that sexual abuse of children residing at Roecliffe Manor is likely to have taken place, although the extent of such abuse is unknown. Despite this finding, it has not been possible to corroborate evidence to conclude that Jimmy Savile was responsible for carrying out any sexual abuse on children at Roecliffe Manor, or that he ever visited Roecliffe Manor. We have passed all of our relevant investigation materials over to Leicestershire Police."
